Late Quaternary Evolution of Western Australian Continental Shelf Sediment Systems
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis shows how Western Australian coast and continental shelf evolved into their present form, in response to changes in sea-level and climate, during the last Glacial Age. I have focused on four contrasting marine environments: the Kimberley coast and offshore islands, Shark Bay, the Swan River estuary and Geographe Bay. In each area, I took a multidisciplinary approach to my data collection and analysis utilising remote sensing, marine geophysics, sedimentological and geochronological methodologies.
